I was struck watching one of the unaired Firefly episodes ("The Message") by how much an incidental audio playback device resembles the recently introduced iPod Shuffle. Apparently by the year ~2500, Apple will have made it slightly thicker, changed the color, stripped the symbols off the wheel and added two buttons for unspecified purposes. It also seems to have a small speaker in it somewhere.
No word on price changes, though I imagine 500 years of inflation would make any specific quoted price rather moot. 04:15PM «
